The place was really nice and the tech was great, she worked really hard to get good pics and find out the sex even though the placenta placement was making it quite hard. I would definitely recommend going there! So much more cozy feeling the hospital where i had the u/s done with my first two.
Awesome! And grats on post !!

CherryBomb, I forgot to mention, I did have to fill out a very small amount of paperwork and one of the questions was "date of anatomy ultrasound"....when i handed them back the paperwork, I just told them that my MW doesn't order u/s unless she thinks there might be a problem. They were totally fine with that

Good to know, thanks!

First time finding out I have anterior placenta.
They didn't really mention it until I asked, and they didnt tell me much about it, but from what I figured out on the internet has given me great comfort.
I hardly feel any movment, in the beginning from 15 wks I felt rolls and little pokes when I was quiet at night, sitting, and then nothing for ages and then some swimming and internal kicks and pokes off and on. It was saturday night when I felt lots of internal movement and then sunday and monday went by with hardly anything at all, of course it makes me worry, but I was telling myself the bub was just cosy and fine in there (most likely!), but not feeling anything is rather concerning when my first pregnancy was so full of movements consistently. It really makes one paranoid and you just want to know what's going on in there!!! I'm experiencing something very new and finding it hard to adjust to it.
But I felt a lot of action last night, bladder pokes, rolling, ect.. enough for me to realise that everything is ok, and that I have to accept the way it's gonna be until she grows bigger.

I say she because that is what they think, i didn't see anything convincing on the ultrasound, it seemed more like a guess, we couldnt get between the legs to see. I still feel a boy in there but I could be wrong.

We also got some news that dampened the mood a bit, that our bub has multicystic kidney on one side- and that kidney may or may not function after birth but the good news is people with this disease of one kidney can go on to live a normal life because the other kidney is capable of compensating for the other one. But we are praying that the cysts will resolve on their own and the kidney will function properly.

My belly is huge but not in the way yet, feeling good in general, good appetite, even with a 2.5 yr old, I get plenty of sleep as she is a great sleeper, self settles, doesnt wake up too early, Mama is happy most of the time, she is well behaved and doesnt cause too many headaches for me.

So thats about it, my next appt is coming up soon as they want to keep tabs on the kidney, but even know there is nothing that can be done about it, i actually would rather wait for the next ultrasound at 32 or 34 wks instead of having them regularly and unecessarily.

I would like to share a link that helped me in my first pregnancy
http://lovefrombaby.com

you get emails from "your baby" every few days, trust me, they come just in time & say just the right things you need to hear in that moment.

reading this was so crazy to me because it's me exactly! first time with anterior placenta, not nearly as much movement as my first two, them thinking it's a girl but we couldn't really get in there because of the positioning with the placenta and myself still feeling that it's a boy!

only time shall tell but i just wanted to let you know theres another mama out there going threw the same thing

I am also experiencing the sporadic movement-- a lot one day, less the next. I am 17 weeks tomorrow and starting to appear more pregnant, I guess, since 2 clients asked me about it today.
I am having a rotten year for allergies, so my energy level is down a little. I have started running again but am not doing that great with it.

I made an appt at the same u/s place for tomorrow at 1pm

Cherry, how exciting!!!

I'm dying for our u/s next Thursday - seems like it's taking FOREVER to get here.

Today I've actually been feeling the baby move quite a bit, which is so nice. It's still very, very light, but no doubt baby. Very reassuring to know *something* is going on in there!

I just saw BB's post first and thought you meant your UNBORN baby and I was like "OMG osteogenisis imperfecta!" I watch too many medical shows.

Hope your little one is healed up soon!

whoops. Should have said my big girl..she's not really my baby anymore...

Her Dada was swinging her around and when he put her down she landed funny. Poor guy feels terrible. Its only a tiny green stick fracture but she goes into a fibreglass cast next week for 2 -3 weeks.

I thought the same thing - I was getting so curious as to how a baby breaks an arm in utero!!

So sorry for your dd AND your dh.

CherryBomb - can't wait to hear your results today!!! Yea!!!

Yay for everyone who's feeling movement and finding out sex! An exciting week for a lot of people!

Melly - Oh no! Poor girl! She does look in good spirits, though.

SunChild - thanks so much for that link!

Butterfly - congrats on your 1,000th post!

Cherry - GL at today's u/s! Be sure to fill us in!

AFM - More than halfway there!!! I'm psyched to be past the halfway point, and to be looking and feeling really pregnant. I have been feeling kicks and movement regularly now for a couple of weeks, and just last week started feeling movement from THE OUTSIDE! That was totally wild, and it's only happened a handful of times, but i LOVE it! I can't wait for DP to feel a good strong kick. She felt a tiny one yesterday evening, but the strong ones are the really amazing ones!

I'm feeling pretty great aside from some minor back discomfort... I really can't complain, and feel that this pregnancy has been going really easily so far (knock on wood). I hope it continues!

Also, I'm really starting to grow now. Here's a collage of pics from weeks 9, 16, and 20 in the same shirt to show growth. Oh, and for fun, a backlit self-portrait from the hotel in Memphis (for a work trip) last week. I couldn't resist; the light was perfect! Lol.

Oh, what else? Well, DP threw me a birthday party on Saturday (mine was Friday) and it was the most fun I've had socializing without drinking (when everyone else was) since getting pregnant. It was just so good to be surrounded by close friends and family. Plus, people brought some cute gifts for the baby. A sock monkey hat and booties set were my favorite!

I guess that's pretty much it for now. I've not been super active on the boards lately, but it's mostly because (like Papa) my pregnancy has been pretty uneventful!
